The student worker in the Center for Gender Resources and Sexual Education collaborated with Haverford College Libraries to create “These Are My Roots: A Journey Through Co-Education at Haverford,” an exhibit focused on the history of women, particularly women of color, at Haverford.
The mission of The Center for Gender Resources and Sexual Education (GRASE) is to cultivate a transformational space and community by providing advocacy, education, programs, and resources on gender and sexuality.
Vision & Values
We envision a community that is radically inclusive, equitable, participatory of our LGBTQ+ students and femme- and women identified students.
We provide advocacy, education, programs, and resources for all students, regardless of gender identity and sexual orientation, to live authentically as well as engage knowledgeably and compassionately with regard to gender and sexuality.
We recognize the systemic and social barriers that have historically, and continue to, marginalize, exclude, and erase communities based on gender identity and sexual orientation, and particularly those at the intersection of race, immigration status, disability, caste, class, religion and spirituality, and other identities.
We center and amplify the voices and lived experiences of Black and Brown Transgender, Non-binary, Gender Nonconforming, Queer, femme- and women-identified communities.
We believe in creating a space for collective liberation through historical and social analysis of oppressive systems, critical discourse of anti-racism, and principles of justice, intersectional, and trauma-informed practices.
We aim to catalyze institutional and social change that affirms, nurtures, and celebrates the victories of Queer and Trans communities, particularly Black and Brown Trans revolutionaries who mobilized and led the movement on LGBTQ+ justice.
The Center for Gender Resources and Sexual Education embraces the values and aspirations of Haverford’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Team which provides a strong foundation for our mission, programs, and outreach.
